"If I were a bee" is the perfect book to ignite a young child's imagination. This delightful book bursts from each page with Dolores's vibrant illustartions and the prose meanders across each page like the lazy, pollen-laden flight of a honeybee. It has a serious side too - native bees are dying out and this is a potential disaster for our planet and our delicate eco-system. The wonderful illustrations of sunflowers, foxgloves, and poppies are an inspiration to create the wild flower gardens that bees love and thrive on. As we read this book to our children and grandchildren we can remind them, and ourselves how important it is to look after our bees.

"Well done on your book it is a great achievement. My son Robbie 3 next month loved it and followed the bee trail with his finger and the poems are lovely, educational and with lots of colour on each page. Well done again".
"It is bright, colourful and cheerful".

"Congratulations on your first publication. My nephew Matthew (6 years old) was thrilled with the story of the bee and fascinated by the colours. His mother was very impressed too since she is an art teacher. I also gave a copy to my grand daughter Eadaoin. She is just eight months now. Deirdre reads it to her. She loves her bedtime story. Looking forward to your next publications Dolores".
"I think the website is great, as is the book. Your illustrations are beautiful. Cormac loved the book too and was so excited reading it. He thought the pictures were beautiful. It really is such a beautiful book".
